6:02am
victims. that secretly-reported tape also showed mitt romney saying he would be a better shot at being president if he were latino. when we spoke on the term immigration, he used the term illegal aliens. >> romney: with a few months before the election, he puts in place something which is temporary, which does not solve this issue. i will solve it on a permanent basis. [ applause ] >> meanwhile romney's attempt to court those in the coal industry has taken a turn. a new ad the company that owns the mine pulled the workers out for the rally and shut down work for the afternoon, because senior managers wanted to attend the rally. they were not paid for the time

6:10am
in two battleground states. >> yes, and it is getting worse and worse. there was an story in the new york time about how they are losing the ad war. we heard that romney's campaign had raised so much more than the obama campaign $300 million. it just wasn't true. they combined the pools to come up with that bigger impressive number, and therefore, in a lot of states like colorado new hampshire, virginia ohio he is being severely outspent on television. >> stephanie: you mentioned ohio, internal polling has the president up by nearly double digits, which is why romney pulled his ads there as well. >> and all of that before he
6:11am
decided to denigrate half of the country. >> stephanie: yes, this is before -- this is taken before this whole latest -- this is not just a gaffe, this is the gaffe-a-palooza. >> this is a rare glimpse at honesty. i'm told he will be having an event? ohio this evening where we'll be kicking a dog for anyone who wants him to in an effort to improve his image. >> stephanie: i love this part the whole tea party party massaging their buttons once again, how else can they be losing to a kenyan muslim,
6:12am
fashionist -- and then you go there. >> i -- i may have been a little bit outrageous in a moment of happiness typing that out, but -- i mean this -- this is what they are headed towards because of their idiotsy, and when he does lose stephanie, we're going to have to deal with months and months you know why mitt romney lost he just wasn't conservative enough. >> stephanie: you were saying this is what happens every time they play dirty. did you see this clip of bill clinton saying give me a break, this is the bigger fairytale i have ever seen and it was not about the economy at all, right? >> yeah and now how often do we have to listen to how romney
6:13am
wants this thing on the economy. whenever there is a distraction, they need it to be back on the economy. you won't even hear romney talking about the economy when he is on the stump now. he talks about god being on money, god being on the pledge of allegiance his faith, how the president is a bad guy -- >> stephanie: he is a bad man. >> yeah, i mean this coming from a guy who said that we wanted him to succeed, and the reason for that is because he has to hold on to his base now, and if you are walking into a general election, and you are more worried about keeping your base intact than you are about expanding to get the votes you need to win, all you are doing at that point is making sure when your ship goes down your waves don't sink -- [overlapping speakers] >> stephanie: karl did you see that press conference yesterday. hilarious. the leaders on the hill didn't
6:14am
want to talk about romney. they are like okay. good night thank you. they have no comment. mitt who? >> i don't blame the congressional leadership they gave the romney campaign a sacrifice in paul ryan and, you know, this is what they get for it. >> stephanie: yep. >> so they could very well lose the house and i'm pretty sure that there's no way in heck they can win the senate at this point. >> stephanie: it's so sad. let's dive into the right-wing world. [♪ circus music ♪] >> stephanie: the base was the guy in texas who was lynching an empty chair thinking that was funny because it was supposed to be the president. >> yeah. >> stephanie: the secret service, jim may not find that funny. >> and the tea party doesn't think it's racist. >> stephanie: no it's prop
6:15am
humor. sean hannity. >> romney's poor point in this which is there are too many people dependent on government, and that's what this election now is going to come down to -- >> why is he yelling. >> stephanie: because he's scared. >> yeah, dammit! >> stephanie: just because i know sean and we're sort of friends, i just feel like holding him there. he needs a hug. >> i feel bad for these guys at fox news. >> stephanie: yeah they are getting kind of shouty. he is echoing his friend rush who said this is a golden opportunity. it's a good thing it's a god send. >> right. >> whenever mitt romney puts his foot in his mouth and says something absolutely extreme and bizarre, the only people that think it's a good thing he said
6:16am
are the people at fox news and conservative talk radio. but i don't know why they are upset at this point, if president obama gets reelected they get to attack him again for another four years. >> stephanie: exactly. charles on -- >> his base believe in the government's central role in their life they believe in victimization, entitlement, and that's the entire philosophy. and you can point to a lot of things. look at the featured speaker of the democratic convention. sandra fluke, she is going to make a $160,000 in the private sector. why was she the big star? ordinary americans will pay her contraception.
6:17am
>> it wasn't just about her -- >> stephanie: wow! >> they can't understand some people want to do something selfless. >> stephanie: yeah. there are only so many different ways to call a woman a slut didn't there? >> yeah. but it's not just about saundra fluke at this point. what you heard is that what conservative think liberals think about this country. and the idea that somebody who fight need food stamps is some kind of a dead beat is so prevalent in the right wing it's ridiculous. and remember, a lot of these people are -- are not unemployed. they are under employed, and they maybe even work 60 hours a week, without getting health insurance without even make money that would lift them out of the poverty level.
6:18am
>> stephanie: and he insulted mostly his base -- a lot of that number that he is talking about is the elderly that have worked and paid into this their whole lives. >> right. they are collecting the benefits they have paid into. >> and also those lazy handicap people with their fancy parking spots.

7:58am
in 30 years. but isn't that the least we can do. >> also the gop ticket wants to appeal the affordable care act. according to new estimates the medicare advantage plans -- those are the private health insurance plans that offer medicare at a more expensive rate than what we can offer through the government, they are not suffering at the hands of health care reform as they claim they would, in fact they are doing even better than before. defenders for medicare and medicaid say enrollment in the plans is up 20%, premiums are down 10%, and benefits have stayed the same. also today you are likely to hear news that more people will face a penalty for not buying health insurance. now 6 million people not 4 will face about a $1,200 penalty if they don't buy health insurance
7:59am
but this is only 2% of the population, and the whole point is to make sure people buy health insurance if they can afford it so they cover their own medical bills and it doesn't fall on the rest of us. education is the key. it is the vehicle. it's the way in which we evolve. every journey is different every possibility is unique. but the beginning, the beginning is my craft. i'm an ordinary person striving to achieve extraordinary things. it started with a dream and i'm on my way there.

of september and he's on defense. politics is about offense. about driving votes to you. when you are on defense all you are doing is trying to hold the ones you have. and this is just not going to work. i don't know how mitt romney is going to get the momentum back. >> stephanie: you and i have been watching politics for a while, this has the sense of real damage and real down ticket damage too, don't you think? >> absolutely. it's a lack of a message, and we talked about it several -- you know, weeks ago, but about the idea that the ryan budget had a $700 billion hole in it, where they had not identified the cuts. the only way that they can get to that $700 billion in cuts -- according to the bookings institution is they have got to cut the mortgage
8:08am
deduction. and that's the only cut that the middle class has. >> stephanie: yeah. yeah. >> and, you know, the -- they were supposed to come out with something this week, you know, with more specifics on what they were going to cut, and we haven't seen a thing. >> stephanie: that's to me i was saying earlier in the show that's why this is so damage withing with video with romney. he is lecturing other people who won't pay their taxes. he won't release his taxes, and he won't give us any specifics on what taxes we're going to pay if we get in. >> i think it was damaging to me in a sense that he didn't show any street smarts. here is a guy talking to 150 people -- and i don't care if they were paying $50,000 a plate, they -- they got cell phones, with cameras on them and, you know, all it takes is
8:09am
one of those people to do, you know, what happened, and you don't say stuff like that in front of 150 people. you just don't do it. it's just loose lips sink ships, and it hasn't have been the carter grandson it could have been somebody else. >> stephanie: maybe they should haven't poked the carters with a sharp stick so many times. we have already seen a bunch of republicans distancing themselves from romney. i feel it is only going to get worse in the debates, because he is not good when he gets flustered in debates, right? >> well it goes back to that sense of entitlement. and this elitist behavior, you can't hide it. and politics is a hell of a lot more simple than people give it credit for being. it's all about addition, and all
8:10am
you have to know is seventh grade math and the first couple of days of algeebra, one, and you can get through it. but the problem is romney is just not a likable guy. he reminds me of the drum major in my high school band for some reason, but there is nothing exciting about him nothing to get people pumped up. his tone is terrible. and he is an awful candidate. and obviously he has an awful staff. >> stephanie: right, and that's his last case -- his whole thing he is running on is look at what a great manager i am. and his campaign is a disaster. >> like i said i like street smarts and you have got to have it. you have to know how people are going to react, be thinking of what you are going to say, and
8:11am
what are the ramifications of what you say before you say it and romney just doesn't have it. and i don't think right now he is fit to be president of the united states. he scares me. >> stephanie: i know. i know. you thought last week was scary with the middle east like he could start world war three before he even gets in. you know the latest polls, mud showing the president pulling ahead, that's before this. >> well, you are talk about the down tickets. here in virginia tim kaine jumps up to a seven-point lead. >> stephanie: yep. >> and i think that has a lot to do with romney's comments. and the fact that they look -- you know, they don't look comfortable running, and if they don't look comfortable running, then people assume they are not going to be comfortable
